“Van Fleet’s Grand Feats: A billion-dollar win? He’s got lots of those,” is the title of the Texas Monthly/Super Lawyers article highlighting Allan’s 40 years of litigation, arbitration, and antitrust victories; pro bono work; and service to the bar and community.
Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business lauded Allan as “an exceptional commercial litigator who enjoys a fantastic reputation in the antitrust sector,” ranking him in the top Band 1 of antitrust lawyers in Texas. In 2017 Chambers designated him a “Senior Statesman” among antitrust lawyers in Texas.
Best Lawyers in the United States named Allan the Antitrust Lawyer of the Year in Houston in 2013 and again in 2017.
He has been repeatedly selected by Super Lawyers magazine in Antitrust Litigation and Business Litigation, among the Top 100 lawyers In Texas (Top 3 in 2006).
In 2010-11, Allan was Chair of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law, the largest body of antitrust, competition, and consumer protection professionals in the world, with 8,000 members globally, including lawyers, economists, enforcement officials, jurists, and academics.
He has tried and arbitrated cases for plaintiffs and defendants across the country and around the globe. His antitrust practice includes, in addition to litigation, developing compliance programs; providing advice on transactions; structuring mergers and acquisitions; and representing clients before federal, state, and international enforcement agencies.
In July 2017, Allan retired from 40 years of practice in BigLaw, including as a senior partner of Vinson & Elkins; Greenberg Traurig; and McDermott Will & Emery. Based in Galveston and Houston, he continues to consult and serve as an expert witness in antitrust, litigation, and legal ethics matters, as well as handle pro bono cases.
